Critic Consensus: Still Star-Crossed stumbles out of the gate, dishonoring its Shakespearean roots with lavishly staged but ultimately empty melodrama.

Critic Reviews for Still Star-Crossed Season 1

Goofing on The Bachelorette at least can be a bit of fun. With Still Star-Crossed, you're only likely to get tired head -- and in a hurry.

The story's racial dynamics are explicitly engaged in a way that adds a familiar layer of interpretation, demonstrating that it is possible to diversify the stories we tell.

Ultimately the show suffers the worst fate in television. It's neither good nor bad, it's just there. It's the kind of show you have on in the background while folding laundry or vacuuming.

It's the kind diversity that colleges dream of putting on the cover of their admissions brochures.

What remains to be seen is whether Still Star-Crossed can find that sweet spot again as it develops - or whether it will continue to coast along on its lavish, gorgeous aesthetic.

May 31, 2017 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

The show (whose executive producers include Shonda Rhimes) risks being just another costume drama with tiresome power struggles and who-cares romantic entanglements.

May 31, 2017 | Full Review…

The writing is so scattered, it's hard to find anyone, Montague or Capulet, to root for. A plague on both their houses.

May 30, 2017 | Rating: C | Full Review…

Merely drafting a sequel to a Shakespeare tragedy smacks of tremendous, ill-advised moxie.

Still Star-Crossed is off the tracks from the opening moments. Rhimes' customarily snappy dialogue has been replaced with something that sounds like special-ed Shakespeare, interrupted by the occasional thudding anachronism.

May 30, 2017 | Full Review…

Parting with Still Star-Crossed after one episode isn't likely to bring sweet sorrow, but rather the relief of a tragedy averted.
